Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame Classic Car Museum
The Dirt Motorsports Hall of Fame Classic Car Museum building was originally intended to house Donnelly’s collection of classic cars, but Andy Fusco and Gary Spaid convinced him to include a Hall of Fame for the region’s dirt Modified drivers, with historic stock cars on display. Jack Speno was named curator of the Museum.
Fusco, Spaid, Gary Rowe, and Gary Chadwick drew up a charter, outlining driver eligibility for induction. These four individuals, plus Tom Skibinski, comprised the original selection committee.
The inaugural induction ceremonies were held on April 12, 1992, with 12 drivers and one pioneer driver being selected. A set of hero cards and posters were sold, honoring that first class. The ceremonies were followed by a Hall of Fame race at Weedsport Speedway.
